Steven Buttrick
  • Steven Buttrick

After spending 7 years working in France as a water sports instructor in the summer, and chalet hosting/ski guiding in the winter, I pursued my passion for fitness by completing a diploma in Personal Training in 2013. For my own personal development within the fitness industry, I wanted to understand more about the functioning of the human body with regards to alternative methods for recovery so I completed a course in Swedish, Remedial and Sports Massage. After many injuries whilst snowboarding, and receiving massage treatment for a dislocated shoulder, I was amazed by what was achievable from the variety of different techniques used within a sports and remedial massage. The techniques I learned from this qualification and incorporating the knowledge gained as a personal trainer, has helped me to be able to assess and treat the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, and pain and injury management, in both a clinical and sporting environment.

Agathe trained at the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance in Dundee. As a Contemporary dancer, Agathe has developed a deep, hands on understanding of the body.
